We are awaiting more information from the Lt. John Mowell at the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office as to why numerous deputy and Lafayette Police vehicles are on the scene of Microtel Inn & Suites on Ambassador Caffery.

Lt. Mowell says this case has NOTHING to do with the bank robbery on Monday in Broussard. Cpl. Karl Ratcliff with Lafayette Police say officers are there to assist the Sheriff's Department.
